1DY CAPP LET'S 'EAR IT-WHAT WOULD 'E 'AVETSAY? 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, February 7, 1975 Referees needed an escort THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The officials needed an es- cort Thursday night after Washington's Phil Chenier hit two free throws after the final buzzer to lift the Bullets to a 98-97 National Basketball Association victory over Golden State in Oakland. The fans thought the one was after the game had ended with the Warriors on top 97-96. "All I can say is I thought we won the said the Warriors' Butch Beard. Chenier agreed with the officials, who had to be es- corted off the court by securi- ty guards as the fans threw paper cups and beer on to the floor. "Sure he hit me, right here" the Washington guard said, pointing to his right forearm. Rick Barry, who led Golden State with 34 points, stole the ball and fed Jeff Mullins for a three-point play with one min- ute remaining that put the Warriors ahead 97-96. But Barry missed two field goal attempts in the final minute and Washington came up with the ball with 11 seconds left. YOU REALLY WANTTp KNOW? 2-6 DAD N6VEB WAS MUCH OF A TALKER Good players cost money Bill Dineen unhappy about late call THE CANADIAN PRESS Things seem to go right for Quebec Nordiques when they play Houston Aeros. Robert Guindon's goal with nine minutes remalning'in the third period gave Quebec a 4-3 World Hockey Association victory over the Aeros Thurs- day night. It was the third win in as many games for the Canadian Division leaders over Houston this season and Aeros' coach Bill Dineen felt the referee and a bit of luck helped the Nordiques. Houston missed a tie in the last two minutes when referee Ron Harris disallowed Andre Hinse's goal. Harris ruled that Quebec goalie Richard Brodeur had covered the puck in the crease long enough. He made the ruling with left on the clock and the puck in the back of the goal. "You could see from the bench that the puck was still loose in the Dineen said. "He (Harris) was out of position on the play, too." In other WHA games Thurs- day, Cleveland Crusaders blanked Baltimore Blades 4-0 and Minnesota Fighting Saints and San Diego Mariners tied 2-2. The winning goal at Houston was a dribbler by Guindon at of the final period. Paul Popiel of the Aeros was draped all over Guindon as he came in on the left wing. Guindon got a weak backhand shot that went right through Houston goalie Wayne Rutledge's pads. "The first (Quebec) goal was a weird one, Dineen said. "Rutledge sort of swept it into the net when all those people got on top of him. They seem to get those kind. They beat us last year when they scored with nine seconds to go-" Both teams scored two goals-in the first period and one each in the second. CALGARY (CP) Calgary Stampeders lost last year, compared to a profit of in 1973, mainly because the Western Football Conference club "spent whatever money necessary" to prepare for the 1975 Grey Cup, the club's annual meeting was told Thursday. Outgoing President Tony Anselmo said despite a dismal beginning, Stampeders "came alive in the last half of the 1974 season, compiling a five win, three loss record, the best in the Canadian Football League." However, improved perfor- mance came too late for Calgary, which missed the playoffs three years in a row after winning the Grey Cup in 1971. This year, the Canadian Footb'all classic will be played for the first time in Calgary, the city's Centennial year. Mr. Anselmo, ending his two-year term as president, noted the club acquired such players as running back Willie Burden, linebacker Octavus Morgan, defensive end Larry Moore and defensive backs Ozell Collier and Larry Cates toward the end of the season. General Manager Gary Hobson reported that 18 players have already been signed for the 1975 training camp and most of them, including several late National Football League cuts, were signed last year. "We certainly did early preparation for the 1975 season, a year in which we will concentrate on quality rather than Mr. Hobson said. The club's gross revenues and expenditures totalled and last year, both records. The deficit was offset in part with income from a fund raising dinner, resulting in a net loss of Increased revenues came mostly from higher ticket prices, despite a 9.1 per cent decrease in attendance at McMahon Stadium. Increased expenditures were largely attributed to the acquisition of "the best players available" toward the end of the season for this year.
